Fired CNN staffer from CT to pay child he lured for sex $1.1 million

Fired CNN producer John Griffin was sentenced Tuesday to 19 years in federal prison for luring a 9-year-old girl with her mother to his ski home in Vermont in 2020. 

He was also ordered to pay the girl, who is suing him in Connecticut state court, $1.1 million in restitution, according to the United State’s Attorney’s Office in the District of Vermont. 

Calling his behavior “outrageous,” U.S. District Judge William Sessions III, said during the sentencing Griffin’s conduct warranted a “severe penalty,” according to officials. 

Griffin, a former Norwalk and Stamford resident, has been held by federal authorities since his indictment in December 2021 on three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity.

Griffin was fired from his job as a CNN producer after the indictment. He is also being sued by the girl, who is now 11, and her guardian who claim the child was forced to commit sex acts while she was at his home in Ludlow, Vt. The lawsuit is expected to be settled soon, said attorney Joel Faxon, who is representing the child.
